THURMONT, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 / -- Even during plague times, creative arts have thrived. Shakespeare wrote King Lear during quarantine.

The recorded classes are taught by the late Myron Barnstone, recognized by Fine Art Connoisseur magazine as a leader in bringing classical drawing and design back into mainstream art education in its March/April 2020 issue. Barnstone himself was a celebrated painter in the 60s and 70s, with highly-lauded exhibits in Paris. He honed his skills at Oxford University’s prestigious Ruskin School of Art. Barnstone grew frustrated, however, that contemporary art schools stopped teaching the disciplines studied by master artists for centuries, like anatomy and the geometric precision of The Golden Section. Instead, instructors were urging students to do “what felt good.”

Barnstone locked away 500 of his paintings and drawings, and burned hundreds more, to keep from influencing his students’ developing artistic vision.
During the 35 years he ran Barnstone Studios in its original location in Coplay, Pennsylvania, thousands learned the skills and techniques that launched them into distinguished careers as artists, professors, authors, animators, architects, graphic designers and other art-related professionals.

Barnstone Studios at 202 A East Main Street, Thurmont, Maryland, is dedicated to fostering an appreciation of fine art, and helping to make art education accessible to all who desire to develop their talent and enrich their lives.
